Raw ShapeWay “Cookies” recipe

This recipe is from my friend Kathy Jones, former owner of a health food store in California. These are soooo yummy and jam-packed with healthy ingredients! I'm very picky about cookies and there are very few I really like. I was so impressed with these! If you don't have ShapeWay on hand, use any yummy tasting protein shake powder that you have.

Raw ShapeWay “Cookies” (makes about 30)

1 cup raw almonds

½ cup raw walnuts

1 cup pitted dates ( I prefer the Medjool but any will work)

½ cup unsweetened dried cherries (can use raisins, dried cranberries, etc.)

¼ tsp. pure vanilla extract (may be able to leave this out since ShapeWay is so vanilla tasting)

3 Scoops of ShapeWay powder (more or less to taste) - available for purchase at http://www.shapewaybodychallenge.com/iwi

For coating:
½ cup ground almonds
¼ cup unsweetened coconut

First, for the coating, grind the ½ cups of almonds in a food processor, until finely ground. Remove from processor to a plate, add coconut and mix together. Set aside.

Grind the almonds and walnuts in a food processor until chopped. DO NOT grind too fine as you want some texture. Add the chopped pitted dates, vanilla, cherries and ShapeWay powder and process until it starts to come together. If necessary add a little water to make moist enough to hold together.

Form into small balls and roll in almond/coconut mixture. Flatten slightly and lay on lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate to set. Store in airtight containers.

Because these are so YUMMY, they won’t last long but if they do, refrigerate if you don’t eat them in a couple of days.
